Reports from the Judicial Conference

I have just come back from participating in this enlightening teleconference, and return to news concerning the Booker work done today by the US Judicial Conference. SCOTUSblog in this post reports that the Conference at its meeting "urged Congress to take no immediate legislative action to alter the federal sentencing system in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling limiting the Sentencing Guidelines to an advisory role."   A fuller account of the Conference's Booker work can be found in this official news release from the Administrative Office of the US Courts.

In addition, the Administrative Office of the US Courts also issued today this news release covering overall case filings in the federal courts in fiscal year 2004.  Since these statistics run through September 30 2004, I think there are obvious (and not so obvious) Blakely stories in the increase in criminal case filings.
